This Wolfenstein 3D mod lets you pat the dogs until they go to sleep

When Wolfenstein 3D released in 1992, the game was missing one crucial feature: the ability to pat dogs. Instead, the dogs in Wolfenstein 3D were prone to biting you, and the only way to retaliate was to brutally murder them. Sure, they were dogs belonging to nazis, but that didn't mean the dogs themselves were nazis.

And it sounds like shooter behemoth Activision may be interested in cutting a slice of that pie for itself, too.

Capital Wasteland, the remake of Fallout 3 in Fallout 4, has been cancelled

It was just a hair over two weeks ago that we reported on the Capital Wasteland project, a recreation of Fallout 3 in Fallout 4. A pre-alpha gameplay video demonstrating the old game in the new engine looked good, and progress seemed to be coming along well, even though there was much still to be done.
